Cinema was made for horror, and vice versa. It's one of the oldest
genres, inspiring many of the greatest filmmakers, including F.W. Murnau, whose
silent German Expressionist masterpiece Nosferatu (1922) remains the benchmark for
vampirism on the screen. Max Schreck as the bloodsucking Count Orlok is no
Robert Pattinson. But his charismatic loathsomeness has endured for 90 years.
It screens tonight at the Armory
Center for the Arts,
where the Klezmerim Quintet will
intensify Murnau's nightmarish imagery with their original, live soundtrack.
The Armory is at 191 Highland Ave,
